The students are easily identifiable when they’re working because of the red polo shirts they wear.  SRT member Shelly Fulks was not on “red polo duty” when she saw the family of a prospective student a few days ago, but she quickly did all she could to put the guests at ease.  Here is the description of her kindness that we received last week from the visiting family:

Kudos to student, Shelly Fulks!!!  She saw our family waiting to order food in the Health Sciences Building.  She offered her last two meal swipes to us since she was going out of town for the weekend.  After we ordered, she invited the three of us to sit and eat with her while she told us all about her Samford experience!  She really connected with our daughter and made her feel at home!

The world is better because of Shelly and all the students in red polo shirts who regularly practice the gift of hospitality to our guests.
